Podrobný popis:

Publikace: DESERT FLOWER B format - DIRIE, W.. Waris Dirie's story puts "rags to riches" to shame. The "Desert

Flower" started life as one of 12 children of a Somali nomad

family, a people with no written culture, where the basic unit of

currency is the camel. Faced at 12 with the prospect of marriage to

a 60-year-old man she didn't know, she broke all the rules and ran

away, surviving a traumatic trek across the desert to end up in

London, as a maid to the Somalian Ambassador. It was in McDonalds

that her striking beauty was "discovered", leading to a career in

modelling and another as an ardent campaigner against female

genital mutilation (circumcision). As a novel it would be

unbelievable, as Waris survives circumcision, rape, arranged

marriage, a lion attack--you name it, she's lived through it. But

the book is remarkable less for its deliberately dramatic set

pieces, and more for its haunting evocation of the little-told life

of Somalian nomads, seen from a child's telling perspective, where

life centres on the beloved camels, the horrors of womanhood are

still an exciting mystery, and the nights are filled with the smell

of frankincense. Desert Flower is a recollection of such gentle

beauty that "rags to riches" seems hardly appropriate. Publikace: DESERT FLOWER B format - DIRIE, W.. Waris Dirie (the name means desert flower) lives a double life - by day she is a famous model and UN spokeswoman on women's rights in Africa, at night she dreams of her native Somalia. Waris, one of 12 children, was born into a traditional family of desert nomads in East Africa. She remembers her early childhood as carefree- racing camels and moving on with her family to the next grazing spot - until it came her turn to meet the old woman who administered the ancient custom imposed on most Somalian girls: circumcision. Waris suffered this torture when she was just five years old. Then, aged 12, when her father attempted to arrange a marriage with a 60 year old stranger in exchange for five camels - she took flight. After an extraordinary escape through the dangerous desert she made her way to London and worked as a maid for the Somalian ambassador until that family returned home. Penniless and speaking little English, she became a janitor in Mc Donalds where she was famously discovered by a

fashion photographer. Her story is a truly inspirational and extraordinary self-portrait of a remarkable woman whose spirit is as breathtaking as her beauty. originální anglická četba
